Visit the best ports in the Mexican Riviera onboard Discovery Princess and get a taste of the warm sun, diverse culture and festive flavours of the region. Shop along Puerto Vallarta’s beachside boardwalk, the Malecon. Learn to make ceviche from a renowned chef in Mazatlan or sunbathe on Lover’s Beach in Cabo.

Next up it’s time to experience winter in the Rockies as well as Canada’s northern lights. Canada and Alaska have long been a pinnacle of adventure and luxury travel. There’s something about that sky. That water. And those snow-clad mountains, carving a jagged horizon in between. The Rockies and Alaska are just about as iconic as they come, our journeys here celebrate the scenery, residences and heart-drumming experiences they’re famous for.

With its remote beauty and untamed wilderness, Canada’s Yellowknife is one of the best places on earth to spot the ethereal northern lights in both summer and winter. Journey to this untouched part of the world with APT and spend your days on fun-filled adventures and your nights searching for the magical aurora borealis.
